University of Texas at Arlington
We are a community of Catholic students growing in relationship with Jesus and living out our faith here at UTA
The Pandemic has changed the way we do things, but it has not changed the mission of the UCC.
We have created socially distanced study areas and have retrofitted out chapel to allow for distance during Mass and prayer.
We are practicing social distancing and sanitizing the UCC building daily.
Please come by for community building and prayer. Enjoy the free WiFi, printing, and some snacks (individually wrapped of course)!!

First Time Visiting?

Welcome to the University Catholic Community!
The UCC at UTA is a community of students from UTA and TCC striving to grow deeper in our Catholic faith. We do this through participation in the Sacraments, fun social events, retreats, community service, and small group discipleship. The UCC building is available for study, hanging out, playing pool and video games, grabbing a snack, praying in the Blessed Sacrament chapel and an occasional mid-day nap. The UCC is a place to find and build a community that will help you journey through the college years and develop friendships that will stay with you for years to come.
